Surrogacy, also known as “gestational care”, consists of a woman who carries and delivers a child for another couple or person (called “surrogate”). Eggs are not from the pregnant woman, but from the surrogate or an egg donor.

Around surrogacy may arise some ethical dilemmas, especially around the surrogate mother, such as her motivations, if she was free to choose and had knowledge of what she was doing, and the consequences of the separation from the baby.
The directive of registration of surrogate-born children has changed, now being easier to register them in the Civil Registry.
